Natural Features

Campsites are situated along Rock Creek, just off the Pacific Coast of Oregon in the Siuslaw National Forest, where mosses drape the branches and ferns cover the forest floor, lending a rain forest appearance. The Siuslaw stretches from the lush forests of the coastal mountains to the Oregon Dunes and beaches of the Pacific. Siuslaw is one of only two national forests that border the Pacific Ocean.

The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center is a few miles north. The center has a phenomenal view of the ocean. A variety of short film are shown in the theater, and whale watch volunteers are posted in March to help visitors spot the beautiful, migrating creatures.

Visitors also enjoy exploring tide pools at Cape Perpetua, and hiking along the area' 23-mile trail system. Several paths lead through dense, old-growth forests and to rocky coastal overlooks.
